Tasting Notes

Beguiling aromas of lemon-lime, grapefruit, cream, wet stones, and lemongrass. The palate is bone dry with remarkable freshness, with vibrant citrus notes and a long finish of minerality and fresh green herbs.


Château Haut-La Péreyre produced its first vintage in 1891 in the lieu-dit of Péreyre, back up in the pastoral hills of Entre-Deux-Mers. It sold its wine in bulk to négociants over the years until Olivier Cailleux’s parents began estate bottling in 1974. Olivier himself was given keys to the domain in 1994 after completing his enology studies and doing internships in South Africa, New Zealand, and at Cos d’Estournel. He is the sixth generation to manage the family’s affairs. In these hills during the Middle Ages the local lord established his digs at the nearby Château de Benauge, which served as a fortress during the endless skirmishes of the 100 Years War. It was the last bastion to fall to the French when they won the war in 1453 and finally drove the English out of Aquitaine. The sub appellation of Haut Benauge was named after a local fort from the 100 Years War and created in 1955 as a superior zone for whites within Entre-Deux Mers thanks to its hillsides and limestone soils.
